About DWA

How DWA works with Government Employment Agencies


DWA regards the Disability Employment Services (DES) and Job Services Australia (JSA) Providers as a valuable asset to achieving successful employment outcomes for people with a disability. DWA acknowledges that we cannot achieve the results without their assistance and support.

DWA will work closely with DES and JSA Providers by:

  • providing an internet website that lists all job vacancies with employers that have informed DWA of a job vacancy;
  • emailing and faxing job vacancies if required;
  • conducting a prescreening interview with job seeker and service to ensure that DWA can advocate to employers;.
  • providing a telephone information service that operates during normal business hours;
  • meeting regularly to ensure that DWA gains an understanding of the needs of DES & JSA Providers regarding the recruitment of people with disabilities;
  • informing DES & JSA Providers of the needs and wants of employers, particularly large employers regarding the recruitment of people with a disability;
  • assisting DES & JSA Providers in meeting the needs of employers.

DWA has established steering groups in each state of Australia, consisting of DES & JSA Providers to work collaboratively to:

  • identify barriers to employment of people with a disability and develop strategies to break down the barriers;
  • identify strategies for making employment more accessible to people with a disability;
  • raise awareness of the value of employing people with disabilities;
  • provide up to date information to employers on the range of services available and their responsibilities and liabilities associated with the employment of people with a disability.

 

DWA will continue to appreciate that they cannot fulfill employers' expectations alone and the support from the DES & JSA Providers is crucial to the success of any individual tailored plan developed with employers.
